Design by Florence Knoll, 1961.
By Knoll.

Florence Knoll referred to her 1961 line of desks as the "meat and potatoes" needed to fill in gaps in the Knoll Collection. Her spare, angular designs remain stunning examples of the modern aesthetic. With the 78-Inch Oval Table Desk, select from a range of laminate, veneer and natural, polished or satin (matte) marble tops with Polished Chrome or Satin Chrome base.

Like so many of her groundbreaking designs that became the gold standard for the industry, the 1961 Executive Collection made its way into the pantheon of modern classics. Thoughtful construction of the Florence Knoll 78-Inch Table Desk includes a frame and legs made of heavy gauge welded steel. The post and four-star legs are finished in polished chrome (or optional satin chrome). The table tops are offered in smooth laminate, wood veneer, or marble with bevel-edge.

Select Polished Chrome or Satin Chrome base, then select from a variety of laminate, wood veneer and polished or satin (matte) marble table tops. Also available, the 98-In. Oval Table Desk and Round Table Desk.
